    Hi, I'm having the weirdest problem trying to jailbreak my friend and his brother's two 8gb iphone 3g's (3g, not 3g). Nearly every time I try, it hangs up with the blackra1n program saying "running" and the phone showing the connect to itunes screen. One time after restarting, one of them did jailbreak, but after installing cydia from blackra1n, it crashed a few seconds after opening, every single time. I also tried it on another computer, still same problem. Both computers are windows xp, logged on as admin accounts.
    Any suggestions?

    i dont know if this is true but i've heard that the reason it wont jailbreak is because it wasnt jailbroken on 3.0.

    i dont see how that makes a difference, but ive had trouble jailbreaking my new iphone 3g for a week with blackra1n. Will it definately work on a mac? because i have access to a mac

    Huh, there's an interesting point. MY 3g was jailbroken on 3.0, updated and unjailbroken to 3.1, and then jailbroke in 30 seconds. Neither my friend nor his brother were ever jailbroken before now on each of their 3G

    so do you think that i should try and downgrade to 3.0 jb then upgrade to nonjailbroken firmware and then jailbreak? is it even possible to downgrade now that apple doesnt sign the fw anymore?
